Light pregnancy drinks

One issue that always seems confusing is if alcohol is evil or good during pregnancy. Although its evil scale seems to win the race but some good’s are queuing too. Heavy alcohol drinking during pregnancy can cause a condition called Fetal Alcohol Syndrome. But question is what about light drinking?

A recent study suggest that light drinking i.e. one or two drinks per week during pregnancy probably don’t harm the mental health of the baby. They followed children of mothers who drank in light amounts up-to the age of 7 years and found no mental deficit rather those children excelled in maths and certain other tests given to them. This might be a good news for women who drink alcohol and planning a pregnancy. Although what happens to the mental health of these children after 7 year age is not known since they followed up-to that age only. Before you sprout with joy to have liberty of drinking during your pregnancy, just talk about it with your doctor, after all it’s all about  your new coming junior. Think wise, decide better!
